River Downs

Original June 2016 A few years ago this course was literally a farm. But today it is coming back nicely. A few holes still need work, but I played there about 6 weeks ago and then 4 weeks later and noticed a big improvement in the fairway grass. Book online, or even call the club house and they may match the online price, which is the best bargain in golf in 50 miles at least. Added 10-24-18. It seems the new management, like the previous, after attempting to revive the golf course, has given up the ghost. This summer's rains haven't helped. There just isn't enough investment to make this work. If you have a dozen old balls and book with one of the discount sites like Teeoff, for $15 or less, then it would rank a little better than a day at the driving range.

Course is tough, but rewarding and unique. Staff is friendly and welcoming. One of my favorite courses.

Have played several times to find empty water coolers every time throughout the course. Pack your own drink. Course is in dire need of some TLC. This course has so much potential but the owner shows little interest and the employees follow with the same demeanor.

Okay, it has rained a lot in MD lately. But... This place is a pit. We get there on a Saturday. They say that two holes are too wet to play and are closed. So, they gave us $10 off. So, that was good. However, what they did not tell use was that every fairway was mud with little to know grass. The tee boxes were a joke, again, little to know grass and a bunch of weeds. The greens were in decent enough shape, but the rest of the course was, frankly, unplayable. One hole that was "open" had no tee box, you had to hit from the drop area. Honestly, I have played here many times before and the course, while kind of a funky layout, was always in decent condition. There is simply no way I would play this now.

Nice sprawling challenging course. Ride the golf carts through lots of woods and around massive homes. Grass was in horrible shape with many dirt patches, or in some cases an entire fareway of dirt with little pockets of dead grass. Friendly staff, typical snacks. Again, pretty challenging course.

Terry himself waited on my boyfriend and I at the bar. Terry was extremely friendly and attentive, with wonderful suggestions about cheese and condiment pairings, even providing samples of one of the cheeses. The Foghorn leghorn sauce is phenomenal! Atmosphere and food are as enjoyable as the owner.

I LOVE Terry's Turf. Nice wait staff, great food, eclectic interior design, located off the beaten path. What's not to like? I've been several times and will go again several more. This place is unique and good!

Terry's is a unique place. Los of neon and signage add character to this place. But the burgers are outstanding! You can customize it however you want with a wide variety of toppings and cheeses (extra cost involved). The fries are great, I recommend getting a specialty sauce to dip them in.

Great course for the money... it is always pretty quick too. The course can be a little tough; there are a bunch of holes where you need to position your drive carefully and fairways can be narrow or blind. That said it's still my go to for a quick public round!!

Food was great. There was only 2 of us during lunch time so we had to sit by door. Wasn't too happy about that. Next time we'll have more people to go with us so we will be in better sitting.
